E-LIFE - China
In fifteen years, the Chinese town of Guiyu has changed significantly. The town now is a gray place where the local people cannot use running water. The roads are also lined with bundles of plastic, wires, cables and other garbages. Different components are separated based on their value and potential for re-sale. Computers, electronics and mobile phones pile up in the streets, a small town of not more than two hundred thousand people in southeastern China. In 20 years has gone from being green and leafy to becoming one of the most polluted towns in the world, as millions of tons of electronic waste from Western companies have been arrived from Hong Kong port and also from mainland China.
